If you are planning on playing Division I athletics, you must become aware of a newly-adopted NCAA proposal. The NCAA has begun identifying "non-traditional" courses from various high school programs that do not meet the parameters of the newly-adopted proposal.
What are "non-traditional" courses? According to the NCAA, the non-traditional courses include: online, virtual, independent study, correspondence, individualized instruction and courses taught through similar means, which would also include software-based credit recovery courses. Courses that meet (and don't meet) core-course requirements for eligibility purposes are updated on the NCAA Eligibility Center web site.
If you intend to take some non-traditional courses, it is imperative that you do your homework to make sure that the courses you choose are acceptable core courses.
According to the NCAA, in order for non-traditional courses to be considered they must include regular access and interaction between an instructor and student for purposes of teaching, evaluating and providing assistance to the student throughout the duration of the course.
